    AUSTIN - As students at the University of Texas at Austin cram for final exams this Saturday, two groups advocating an end to all gun-free zones are planning to stage a "mock shooting" on the school's campus.

    Around 30 members of the pro-gun groups Come and Take It Texas and DontComply.com are expected to attend the event, said organizer Murdoch Pizgatti. The Austin American-Statesman first reported that the mock shooting would take place.


    "It's going to be public theatrical performance against gun-free zones," he said, adding, "Crisis actors are needed!"

    While it's legal to openly carry a long arm like a rifle in most places in Texas, "non-public" areas of public colleges and universities are considered gun-free zones. Saturday morning, Pizgatti said the demonstrators will stage an armed open carry march "near the school." Around 2 p.m. they will head to the campus to stage the mock shooting.

    No real guns will be used in the demonstration, he said. Rather, the group will utilize cardboard cutouts of firearms during the event.

    "It's basically going to be a hostage situation where people are shot and then the one person with a concealed handgun will come in and save the sit and reduce the body count," said Pizgatti. "It's pretty much going to be portraying the incidents in gun free zones and why they happen. The bad guys don't obey gun free zone signs and good people do."

    The university, the site of the nation's documented mass shooting on a college campus in 1966, did not immediately return request for comment.

    This isn't the first time UT-Austin has been the target for an unusual protest involving guns. Next fall, thousands of people have pledged to storm the campus strapped with dildos and other sex tops in opposition to recently-passed campus carry law that will soon allow more concealed weapons at public colleges and universities in Texas.

    UT-Austin has been the epicenter of the opposition to the new law, with staff and faculty threatening to sue the university if it does not keep much of the campus gun free.

    Jessica Jin, organizer of the dildo protest, posted this on the mock shooting organizer's Facebook page: "It must not be very fun to have to use fake guns for your 'crisis performance,' so in lieu of that sad cardboard, I came to extend an offer to borrow from our arsenal of dildos!"

    "They deleted my post! So now I'm trying to see if anyone is interested in showing up to play along... with dildos," she later told the Chronicle.

    Members of the anti-campus carry group Gun Free UT said the mass shooting protest was insulting to the memories of the 16 people who were shot dead by Marine sniper Charles Wittman in the now infamous UT Tower shooting, the nation's first mass shooting on a college campus.

    "Campus carry advocates want us to trust and respect them as so-called law-abiding gun owners. This event shows why we don't," said Joan Neuberger, a professor of Russian history. Radio and television professor Ellen Spiro added, "This is a deep insult to the memories and lives of every American that we have lost to gun violence."

    "Gun Free UT will treat them as if they are invisible. They do not deserve to be seen and heard by our children via the nightly news."

    University officials said they would not block the dildo-wielding protesters who show up next year, as long as they "remain civil."

    If this hits the news as a real shooting then @Jim J Jiblets will be vindicated.

    Wanna place bets on people getting shot for real?

    Texas is probably the worst place to try goofy bullshit involving fake guns.
